Florida's Cuban Obsession

After SIX+ decades...
still punishing Cubans in Cuba...
while STILL...
trying to RE-capture the island...
while hiding behind the skirts...
of the world's Superpower!!
      I believe the man on the right in the above photo is the bravest man in the entire state of Florida. His name is David Richardson. A well-known Democrat in state political circles, he is now running to replace the extremist Cuban-born Counter Revolutionary Ileana Ros-Lehtinen who has represented Miami in the U. S. Congress since the Bush dynasty sent her to Washington way back in 1989, when Jeb Bush was her Campaign Manager as his entree to being accepted as a Counter Revolutionary and thus a two-term Florida governor. This week David Richardson was in Havana as the first and only serious Miami political candidate to display such bravery since 1959, the year the Cuban Revolution chased the leaders of the Batista-Mafia dictatorship from Havana to their new capital, Little Havana in the heart of Miami, Florida...changing the USA forever.
     While in Havana this week, congressional candidate David Richardson, as shown above in the blue Nike shirt, met with ordinary Cuban entrepreneurs who benefited from the decent Obama overtures to Cuba but, as expected, have been severely harmed by the indecent Trump-Rubio assaults since the Democrat Obama was replaced by yet another Batistiano-aligned Republican White House, which is now led by President Trump. Both in Havana and in Miami, Richardson has had the guts to say that the U. S. embargo against Cuba, in effect since 1962, has greatly punished three generations of totally innocent Cubans on the island while {1} lying to the intimidated American people that it is "hurting Castro" and meant "to help" everyday Cubans; and {2} the military and terrorists attacks as well as the embargo, to whet the appetites of three generations of rich and power Cuban-American Counter Revolutionaries, empowered Fidel Castro while he lived and has empowered his legacy, both on the island and around the world, since he died at age 90 on Nov. 25, 2016. David Richardson since 1959 is the first serious Miami politician with the guts to take his campaign to Havana and he is the only one with the guts to leave the state legislature in the capital of Tallahassee to go to either Havana or Miami to speak the truth about the Counter Revolutionaries, well knowing that when Miami's top Cuban-American newsman Emilio Milian did so he was car-bombed and when Miami businesswoman Vivian Mannerud Verble had a small, legal, and tangential relationship with Cuba her business was fire-bombed out of existence. But such things have been par-for-the-course since 1959 in the Land of the Free & the Home of the Brave...changing the USA forever.
      The 61-year-old David Richardson is a highly respected member of Florida's state legislature now running to replace the retiring Havana-born Counter Revolutionary Ileana Ros-Lehtinen who has represented Miami in the U. S. Congress since 1989. Although only extreme Counter Revolutionaries such as Ros-Lehtinen, Rubio, Curbelo, and the Diaz-Balart brothers {whose father was a key Batista Minister} seem eligible to represent Miami in the U. S. Congress,  David Richardson is one of five candidates for the coveted seat and the other four -- front-runner Maria Elvira Salazar, Donna Shalala, Kristen Rosen Gonzalez, and Michael Hepburn -- are typical Little Havana political operatives.
   And so...the bravest man in the state of Florida, David Richardson, does not stand a chance to represent Miami in the U. S. Congress...although he may well also be the best politician in Florida. And that sheer fact is yet another reminder that the victory and longevity of the Cuban Revolution from way back in 1959 till this very day STILL says a lot more about the United States of America than it says about the island of Cuba.
